    It was bound to happen.

    In one or two years, they'll likely have ipods with 5-megapixel video cameras... I guess I'm glad I got my iPod when I did, because I have audio, but no color, no pictures, and no video, so I'm free to upgrade when mine finally craps out and breaks.

    //edit... I also can now justify a massive 60gb iPod too, what with all my movies :)

    yea, I have a second gen. I was really hoping that they would go over to a brushed aluminum look to match the powerbooks. That would be amazing.

    nah. There's the iPod, and there's "The Rest". Brushed aluminum might look good and go well with the powerbooks, but it would change the distinctive look of the iPod. I'm willing to bet that a lot of Apple marketing is based on "style factor", where you see everyone else with the same white-and-silver mp3 player and go, "Hey, I want that device too". Switching to another style would create a split in the iPod look, and confuse non-owners (potential buyers). The design of the Mini was bad enough.

    I couldn't find the porn section of itunes store. They're ignoring the main use of the video ipod.

    Hey man, I was just listening to my ipod on the can!

    seems like the iPod Touch is available ahead of schedule. Thought they weren't available till the 28th, but seems like you can buy now and have shipped...
